" I am really excited to join the Millennium Fellowship since I am passionate about connecting ideas that were previously thought to be distinct. I believe that problems do not care about one's specialty. So the need for finding connections that link ideas between and among different fields is vital in creating long-standing solutions. These ideas come from diverse interactions. I look forward to the diverse discussions and interactions. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: ReMed
ReMed is a student-run organization that I cofounded with a group of like-minded colleagues. We decided to start a programme that would teach undergraduates the basics of clinical research since these skills are never taught at that level. Together with a team of highly skilled researcher students and doctors, our main goal is to encourage students to participate in all forms of scientific dissemination, especially in clinical research. With every cohort we recruit, we guide them through a hands-on process on developing simple yet meaningful research projects and develop their means of disseminating scientific communication through presentations and publications. We aim to extend our membership to 80-100 by 2020 and exponentially include undergraduates from both local, regional and global medical schools.
